This Raksha-bandhan, let’s evolve. Traditions, like seeds, should keep evolving to be useful. It’s not our sisters who need protection but rather our mother earth. & it is us, humans, who need to do it, because it is us from whom She has to be protected.
Right from the fields of indigenous cotton growing farmers to the spinners to the women in different villages converting every naturally dyed thread into an unique seed band are playing their part in protecting Her and thereby protecting ourselves. Now it’s your turn to do the same. Buy, tie, sow this seed band and spread the message for the sake of your own self and also to encourage farmers to grow indigenous cotton in the time when most of the country is growing hazardous genetically modified seeds.
